Let me ask you a question instead; what do you hope to learn from this? What do you want to be true?

I get where you're going with this. My interest in entrepreneurship exists independently of the current "startup" scene, so the fact that it's dominated by the upper class doesn't dissuade me from my current goals and interests. My goal isn't to blame any lack of success on the unfairness of our quasi-meritocracy.

It is interesting though to see a group of people who convinced that they are on the progressive side of history admit that much of their success has been achieved through the connections they made at their elite schools and through their parents, which seems like the way business has always been done. But what do I know, I'm just a middle class guy who went to a state school.
